While disclosing that all internal issues within the party that may affect it in the election had been resolved, the governor made reference to their victory in Kogi and Edo, saying that they would repeat the feat.

He said: “A few weeks ago, I was given the responsibility of leading the campaign on behalf of the National Executive for the Ondo election. And the candidate since election at the primaries has not come to be presented to the leader of our party, that is Mr President.

So, today we came in with the candidate and to confirm to the president that APC has only one candidate unlike other parties that are fighting about who is their candidate.
